A Beaver County man was arrested on Thursday after state police said they found a marijuana grow operation at his home in Big Beaver.

Kenneth Lee Vernon, 41, was charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana and related crimes.

Troopers said they went to his home shortly before noon and were greeted with “an overwhelming odor of marijuana ... coming from inside the residence.” They said they found 61 live plants, five pounds of harvested marijuana and paraphernalia used in the grow operation.

Troopers, who said they obtained a search warrant before entering the home, said they also seized a 12-gauge shotgun.
